5:06am
morning. the damage is widespread from new jersey and beyond. con edison in new york is hoping to have power restored by tomorrow in manhattan and areas of brooklyn with underground power lines but that is just a fraction of the numbers without power. they'll join other utility workers already there troying to get power back online as soon as possible, but this is a monomental task ahead. last night dominion was able to restore power to the last of its more than 200,000 customers that lost power due to sandy. that freed them up to be able to send these crews to new york and new jersey, the areas hardest hit. that's the latest here from national harbor. back to you. well, only days to go until the election. and both president obama and governor romney are criscrossing battleground states in the run up to next tuesday. the president picked up an endorsement from michael bloomberg.
5:07am
today on the campaign trail romney starts in wisconsin. then both the president and romney make appearances in the all important toss up state of ohio. romney has two stops and the president has three. also in our top stories this hour, the nationwide man hunt for a virginia man wanted for three pipe bomb attacks in staff ford county has ended in montana. lawrence stewart was captured yesterday following a brief pursuit with police. officers had to use spike strips to deflaet his tires. during the chase he threw a pipe bomb at the officers. he will be extradited back to virginia to face numerous charges. >> the district officer accused of shooting an unarmed suspect in the back will return to court today for a bond hearing. that suspect is now paralyzeed from the waist down. he was pulled over on september 6th on suspicion of driving a stolen motorcycle. he was cuffed and placed in the back of his cruiser. kyle managed to escape from the car and tried to run away and
5:08am
that's when raleigh fired his gun. >> it's difficult to see how there will be any real justice in the case. i mean, mr. kyle's paralyzed for the rest of his life, and so you know, it's just one of those unfortunate cases that there may not in the end be any real justice. >> he turned himself in yesterday. he is facing several charges including attempted murder. it appears japan is not happy with u.s. military on one of its islands. we'll tell you what's prompted them to file a complaint. and a major drug bust in brazil, the dealers targeted, how police made the discovery. and changes could soon be coming to the city's speed cameras. that will perk your ears up. more on that coming up next.  now this is a party.
5:09am
5:10am
mmm. i don't know, i think i might bail. yeah, it's pretty dead. [ male announcer ] one is never enough. new kfc dip'ems. freshly prepared tenders dipped in irresistible sauces. try a 20 pc bucket with 6 sauces.
5:11am
new this morning there are more tensions between japan and the u.s. troops on. japanese authorities say a 24-year-old u.s. airman is suspected of assaulting a young
5:12am
boy. he'd reportedly been drinking and this comes after all the troops were put under a curfew after two navy sailors were arrested for allegedly raping a woman. a underground tunnel used to give cocaine to university students. it went to a cocaine lab and the tum connected to the area near a campus. the trafficker would exchange the drugs for cash. back here at home d. c. mayor is announcing changes to fines from speed cameras. while making sure that the public is safe, the mayor will be joined by police chief and other transportation officials at the wilson building at 10:30 this morning. now, most persons apparently want to finish eating their thanksgiving dinner before they turn their attention to st. nick. >> i can understand that. >> that's fair, but what a new
5:13am
study reveals about christmas music is coming up. and with the early snowfall in virginia will a popular ski resort there open early? >> first let's send things over to tucker. >> it's cold arntd here. temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s. we'll get some sunshine for your friday and slightly warmer temperatures. details on your weather and julie's got a look at your traffic too right after the break.
5:14am
5:15am
5:16am
okay. now that halloween has come and gone is it too early to think about christmas? you hear the music. it's kind of difficult to not get in the spirit. >> never too early. >> according to most shoppers, yes it is. >> nearly 80% of americans think stores should wait until after thanksgiving to deck the halls to play christmas music. >> they also want to make special use of apps to help them shop this christmas. >> i like the music but i'm like yeah, it's too early. >> but don't we have this debate every year? we do and we never win. >> i think they should wait till after but i can still do my shopping. >> we still have a full month between thanksgiving and christmas. >> i saw a store set up their
5:17am
stuffer three weeks ago. >> christmas candy is already out. it's everything. >> get used to it. it's here to stay. >> kind of a christmas weather out there lately. >> at least colder. >> yeah, this morning some cool temperatures. 30s and 40s. going to be another day featuring relatively cool temperatures for this time of year although promising a little more sun than what we've seen in the last few days. >> we need it. >> that won't be hard to do by the way. 36 in gaithersburg. check at your 30s. we're down to freezing now. here we go. we have not had a freezing temperature yet at reagan national so 34 in winchester. 38 in dulles. very cool out there. so these temperatures on the chilly side. got some clear skies overnight and that allowing these temperatures to really bottom out. all right. few clouds rolling through at the moment. out to the west, this is looking upstream here, this is our next weather feature and i don't
5:18am
think they'll bring us any rain showers but likely to bring a little bit of cloud cover during your friday. partly sunny today and cool. our high temperatures will top out in the mid-50s but we have a little sunshine working in to dry things out and it should feel a little better for us for today. looking to the weekend, both saturday and sunday look bright and sunny. a nice quiet weather pattern here as we get into the weekend. a big dip in the jet stream and temperatures around here remain chilly. as we get into the weekend here, we should get the remnants of sandy on out of here so we should be looking at plenty of sunshine. looking upstream, we're talking about this potential storm for next week and you probably already heard a lot about it. this will be your more typical noreaster. that doesn't mean it will bring us a day of clouds and rain but i don't think it will bring us anything close to what sandy did during the week. looks like the timing would be early as next tuesday. probably next wednesday.
5:19am
partly sunny skies, still cool out there. partly cloudy and cool overnight. your winds south and west at 5 to 10 so it will be cold again later tonight. weekend forecast looking good. it will be chilly here. saturday night and the games should be dry, but it will be chilly as we get into the weekend and then perhaps that coast tall storm by late tuesday or wednesday next woke. we'll have to work on that timing a littl. >> what are you doing sf >> traffic. >> you mean right now or this weekend? >> either. >> right now i'm looking at the outer loop of the beltway. this is where we had overnight construction. traffic was squeezing by to the left. all gone now. lanes are open. south on 95, 295 quiet. no problems to report on the american he john bridge. inner loop looks great leaving the toll road heading back
5:20am
towards 270. 66 eastbound, light traffic v no problems to report continuing in towards the beltway. thanks. look at this video. snow shoe resort in west virginia got more than 2 feet of snow from superstorm sandy but the resort will not be opening early. officials said they could open for skiers this weekend but it's too dangerous. there are widespread power outages and the surrounding area is in a state of emergency. they have other things to deal with right now. if you see a lot of snowplows around d.c. this morning i don't think there's a blizzard coming. it's just a drill. they're testing its readiness for winter storms. the dry run is to help with training of more than 1,000 members of the team at the public works department. metro bus drivers caught nodding off and sleeping on the job, some while they were behind
5:21am
the wheel. now, according to the transit agency 67 drivers were caught between january of 2010 and february 2012 and some were working as many as 16 to 20 hours a day. the washington examiner broke this story. >> almost half of those people who were caught on the camera driving while sleeping were working what's called a swing shift is where they work the morning rush and they take a break and they work the afternoon rush and metro has said itself that those swing shifts can mean really long days, up to 16 hours and when the person gets to work to when they get to go home and some of these workers have long commutes. they live in farther out regions. they have to get to a bus garage and start their day. >> we reached out to metro and the spokesman said quote, we reviewed more than 10,000 clip from january 2010 through february 2012 and found that
5:22am
there were 68 instances where the operator may have been fatigued. while one instance is one too many it's important to understand that metro operated more than 9.6 million bus trips during that period. further review indicated that work hours and shift lengths were not factors in the vast majority of the cases. all right. the biggest names in country music walked the red carpet last night. a look at the cmas big winners coming up next. [ minto ] you know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme.
5:23am
so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message.
5:24am
5:25am
many people are taking advantage of early voting. >> one maryland woman tells us she already voted but it did not go quite as she planned. >> reporter: it's the first time for early voting and obviously it's going over well here in prince georges county. look at this huge line that snakes around here. one woman we talked to said she didn't mind waiting in the line but she did mind what happened next. >> i was really upset. >> she's in her 60s and had never missed a chance to vote in a presidential election. she didn't want her face shown on tv but she says she waited two hours in a long line wednesday. >> who did you vote for? >> obama. >> and whose name popped up as the one that was checked? >> mitt romney. >> she's certain she did not
5:26am
make a mistake. she saw what happened when she double checked the ballot. >> i went back and my xs were under mitt romney. >> she's a life long democrat. >> i was like upset. like, what's going on here? >> she says she did point it out to an election worker who was helpful. >> we haven't had one report of any voting irregularities. >> but there have been other complaints around the country including one in north carolina where a voter says she wanted to vote for romney but it kept defaulting to obama. back in maryland alexander says always double check your ballot and remember to read the sample ballot ahead of time, especially this year. >> we do have 14 questions on the ballot, which is -- could potentially extend the average vote time. >> the woman we spoke to says she doesn't care who you vote for, she just wants the election to be fair for everyone.
5:27am
snie would tell them to check to make sure that they're voting for the right person whether it be romney or obama, either or. >> they expect that by now they'd have about 20,000 who voted. instead it's been 35,000, way more than they exp. all right. the ipad minny goes on sale today and apple fans line up around the world. they've been lining up to get their hans on the new tablet but the crowds are smaller than we've seen for previous apple products. the 7.9-inch min is priced higher than model gadgets at $329. >> the lines for early voting seem to be as long for the lines to get an ipad. >> that's good. >> i wonder which one is moving faster though. that's the question. there's a new king in the world of country music. >> blake shellton won top honors
5:28am
taking home the entertainer of the year award. >> now, this is the first time shelton has won the award. previous winners include chesney chesney. all right. good times. still plenty ahead on fox 5 morning news. the battle for the white house, we will tell you where the candidates will take their message today. fox is on our way to the area where people are most affected by sandy. hundreds of trucks here at national harbor prepared to head to new york and new jersey to help out the millions of people still without power. we'll have the very latest on their efforts coming up. [ michelle ] when i first discovered that i had sensitive teeth,
5:29am
i didn't want to change toothpastes. i already had a product that made my mouth feel clean.
5:30am
why am i going to go and change it? the first thing he recommended was that i use sensodyne. sensodyne helps with the sensitivity issues and at the same time it gives you the clean feeling. your mouth feels fresh. sensodyne satisfies the needs that i would look for in a toothpaste. i definitely feel like i can be myself now. i don't have the same pain i did. it gives you your life back.
5:31am
all right. welcome back. it's friday. happy friday, everyone. it's november 2nd. we've got a new month. >> uh-huh. >> this week is coming to a close. we've had a long week and we made it through. all right? that's a live look outside of the u.s. capitol dome. >> the weather is going to cooperate today. a little on the cool side this
5:32am
weekend. >> i'll take it. anything mild, because this past week if that's indicative of anything to come this winter -- >> i know. i have a lot of questions like does this mean we'll have a bad winter? we'll talk about it later. >> we can do that. >> you've addressed this before, because people want to know if we -- >> i think we'll have a more wintery pattern than we did last year. we can't have a mild winter every year. >> which would be to my liking but i'm not in control. >> i am actually. let's get right to the weather and here's your weather. 42 degrees at reagan national. chilly start to your day. jacket weather. kids going to the bus stop it will be cold this morning and cool this afternoon with highs in the mid-50s so these temperatures turning a little below normal for this time of year. we have had enough clearing overnight that these temperatures have been able to
5:33am
fall back into the 30s. more sunshine than yesterday but it won't be a perfectly sunny day. i don't think -- yesterday we had one or two showers during the day. should be a nice dry day for you. highs 55 in washington. 54 quantity coand about 50 in the mountains out to the west. a little cool. a little cool. not too bad though. we'll take it. time now to check in with julie wright again. >> hey you guys. so far so good. again, light traffic volume around the area. i don't think people are up doing that morning stretch just yet. so far so good on 66 coming in through centerville. an easy drive headed eastbound toward fair oaks and 123. the outer loop, no trouble spots reported as we continue. overnight road work that was in place near the northwest branch has cleared. and again, go find yourself at speed in each direction at the

5:35am
virginia has all their trucks lined up. we've seen a handful of workers beginning to arrive. this is part of a massive ert to get help to new york and new jersey in the aftermath of superstorm sandy. four days after that storm made landfall along the new jersey shore, millions of people remain without power in the northeast. dominion virginia is sending 1,500 workers and more than 70 trucks that will be leaving for the disaster areas in the northeast. they're staging right now and will depart around 7:30 this morning. con ed son in new york is hoping to have power restored by saturday in manhattan and areas of brooklyn with underground power lines but it could take a week or more to have power back on for everyone in the northeast. they'll join crews from across the country already deployed there. but given the widespread damage they've got a big task ahead. dominion did restore power to more than 200,000 of its customers in virginia hit by
5:36am
sandy last night. that freed up their crews to come help in the northeast. those crews should arrive later today. they won't know exactly where they'll be working until they arrive there at the staging area and then are deployed from there. dominion virginia says this is their largest ever of mobilization to help aid in another area. that's the latest here in national harbor. back to you. all right. thank you. >> four days until the election and president obama is back on the campaign trail after a pause for superstorm sandy. now, after campaigning in wisconsin nevada and colorado yesterday the president had three stops in the battleground state of ohio today. tomorrow the president will appear in manassas with bill clinton and dave matthews. yesterday new york mayor endorsed president obama. his republican rival is making stops in other parts of

5:38am
"a champion of the tea party...an ideologue who is part of the problem in congress." bartlett calls medicare unconstitutional. and even wants to completely abolish student loans for college. no wonder bill clinton and the washington post both endorse john delaney for his deep understanding of job creation. he'll be "an unusually effective congressman." delaney: it's not about politics. it's about doing what's right to help the middle class. i'm john delaney, and i approve this message.

5:48am
side. 36 in manassas. 37 in gaithersburg. 37 for you in leonard toup. 40 in fredericksburg. temperatures will warm up. they'll rebound into the mid-50s today. not only today but for the weekend as well. clearing overnight because i saw stars so i'm sure that we had at least some clear skies for a moment or two. some clouds rolling back in. it's not going to be a perfectly sunny day but you can see we've got much more clearing than we had yesterday. so i think we'll see more sunshine. partly sunny day. a sprinkle north and west of town. the rest of us, i don't think we'll see any measurable rain today and that will set us up for a good looking weekend. finally get rid of the remnants of sandy once and for all but saturday and sunday look bright and sunny but cool with high temperatures this weekend in the 50s. so if you've got outdoor activities, should be fine for us but definitely jacket weather here to stay. winds out of the west 5 to 10. still cool out there and later tonight partly cloudy and just
5:49am

welcome to another funky edition of off the wall. >> sunday, your guy, cam newton coming right here to take on rg 3 panthers against the redskins. you go back one year and cam newton was the talk of the town, the talk of the nfl. a year later people are going into his body language saying he doesn't have really good body language versus our guy rg 3 has tremendous body language. do you put any stock into that? >> no i don't. it has nothing to do with how you perform on a football field. look at your body language after i beat you down on this show every day and you still keep coming back trying to win. >> head up, cam. >> the rest of his game is not
5:54am
the problem. the problem is the team that he's on. >> you don't think it has anything to do with his performance on sunday? >> he has no offensive line, one wide receiver. an injured runningback. >> you're going to have bad performances. >> it's a press conference. >> finally you smile, you project. that's what we want cam newton to do. >> first of all let me fin you are my statement. jay cutler has bad body language and nobody's say ago word about him. >> they say it all the time. >> no, they don't. >> i've talked to people and they say he's got terrible body language. >> cam is on the wrong team. rg 3 is fine. he's going to be a good matchup. >> speaking of some -- some interesting -- let's just say a situation down there in south beach. okay. they've got a new guy ray allen who crussed to play -- >> right. he's a free agent. >> but he was offered more money
5:55am
by the celtics to stay put, instead he takes less money to go down to miami. fine. that's his choice, but do you have a problem with kevin bar net now giving his old buddy the cold shoulder. >> who cares about kg thinks. he didn't have to get approval to go to another team. >> i'm not talking to you anymore. >> fi went to another station would i need your aprul? no i wouldn't care about your approval. >> ray allen was not going to get that much playing time with the celtics. >> they have tried to trade him twice already. >> ray allen left the organization and last time i checked it's the boston celtics and it's not the old kevin bar net washed up player. >> if you want to keep it on the court and have some competition i say by all means that's old school. that's the way they did it out on the steets. >> i've got a lot of problems
5:56am
with people shaking hands after the game. >> i'm not talking to you after the break. >> i'm not talking to you right now. >> it doesn't last long. >> back to football, the hall will not be suspended for his actions during sunday's game. nfl.com reports the league decided to foin him instead. the cornerback was kicked out of last week's game for an incident with an official. still no word on how much he'll have to pay. he'll afford it. whatever it is. >> the nfl has yet to make an official announcement. to basketball now. barker thinks a 21-foot jumper as time expires, with their new uniforms to give the spurs the win against oklahoma city and parker scored the last 14 months for his team.

5:58am
would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me,
5:59am
